Lakers, and Justin Bieber, Get Their Championship Rings (Pictures)
The Lakers got to celebrate their 16th championship in franchise history with their ring and banner ceremony on Tuesday night. We already told you about the sweet warm up jackets they had on, but what about their sick rings:
Yeah, Justin Bieber somehow managed to slip on Phil Jackson’s ring after Jeannie Buss convinced him. You want details? Fine. I drive a Ferrari, 355 Cabriolet, what’s up? I have a ridiculous house in the South Fork. Wait, wrong movie. Oh yeah, you want details? How about this from the Lakers’ official site:
> Each ring is adorned with a piece of the actual ball used in Game 7 of the Finals
> 16 over-sized round brilliant white diamonds for the franchise’s 16 titles
> Each player is immortalized with a 3D sculpture of their face on their respective rings
> The final score of the Lakers 83-79 Game 7 win is on the side of the ring in scoreboard fashion
What they call rings I call SI’s NBA championship commemorative pack all on your finger. How the heck is someone every supposed to wear something so elaborate? At least Ron Artest should get serious money for his.
